Is it possible to add drop shadow to plan views of vehicles (vehicles are png images as MovieClips) such that as the vehicles change direction along roads (also png images) the shadow is always cast to north west ot the vehicle ? Buildings in the base png image have shadows but vehicles also need them so as to belong to the scene and not appear false.
How is it done ?
Is there control over opacity and softness ?
If I were to have plan views of humans walking would the shadows follow the leg movements ?
you can control the dropshadow's angle property dynamically. and, yes the dropshadowfilter has an alpha and strength properties you can use.
use the help files to see all the properties you can use.
Thanks, thats great news.
Now to experiment.
p.s. please mark helpful/correct responses, if there are any.
